This dishcloth features a special row of treble crochet stitches. The remaining rows are simple single and double crochet stitches. The jewel for February is amethyst so I thought purple shades would be nice. I love to crochet while watching TV or on long drives with my husband. I don’t know what life would be like without this amazing pastime – crochet.
